long we have used politics and the second amendment to cover up our lack of action. yes, the supreme court affirmed we have a right to bear arms, but in that same ruling the court made clear that right is not unlimited. we do not, as justice scalia put it, have an unlimited right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever for whatever purpose. our individual right to bear arms is limited by a right among others to keep our children safe. any of those children could have been one of ours and for 20 parents, it was. we may not be able to stop every crime, we know that no single law or set of laws can prevent every act of senseless violence in our society, but we have the ability and the no-how to prevent many of them. we must simply find the courage. we can no longer be bystanders to injustice. we cannot continue to look on and do nothing. as shakespeare said, the fault lies not within our stars but in ourselves. we must act. thank you. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields. the chair recognizes the gentleman from washington, mr. mcdermott, f
administrative actions are taken inside the state department as a >> what administrative actions are taken inside the state department as a result of this report? >> everything the report has suggested has been embraced by the department and more. secretary clinton has sent out additional measures she think can contribute to advancing the interests set out in the report itself. so i think that will become clear tomorrow. secretary burns and secretary ninth will report in an open session and let open steps being taken. it is a huge step forward to address the lessons learned from them passÉ, which are important to everybody. or 70,000 employees of the day 275 different posts. people are at risk. it's a dangerous world we are in any think this report is going to significantly advance the security interest in those personnel of our country. a major stop there if they will pick it up tomorrow. [inaudible] >> yes, the report specifically calls on resources. there is a need to put about $2.5 billion a year over a number of years into efforts to strengthen our security sadness in various critical place
on the president's call for congressional action early next year. >> i will be putting forward very specific proposals. i will be talking about them in my state of the union and we will be working with interested members of congress to try and get something done. >> vice president joe biden is leading the push to draft those proposals, and yesterday he began that effort, meeting with law enforcement officials and cabinet members. i want to go right to you, michael eric dyson. you saw as much of our audience did, this rather extraordinary address from the head of the nra. here we are. as i said, one week out from this mass murder, from this shooting, which the nation is still reeling from, and as i said, you can only describe it as combative, and one of the themes that really coursed throughout that address was that the problem is fake guns in movies and video games, not real guns in our schools. >> yeah. you are being very kind. i think menevolent at. it wasn't fake guns that killed these kids. they were real guns. they were semiautomatic weapon guns. they were clips and strips and drums tha
action by the senate. >> the classic ping pong gridlock and no way out. >> it's important to know how far we have come in the last seven days. a week ago we were closer than we had seen before on a particular deal. john boehner made a big concession allowing tax cuts to rise on income over a million dollars. president obama countered with a big concession and saying that that should be $400,000 and have fixes to social security on costs of living adjustments on that. what ended up happening? john boehner retreated their plan b that mike viquiera was talking about that was unable to pass and now we are in the stalemate we are in now. we were closer than before. >> you touch on a good point. that's lost now in the media. we are going-over the cliff. last week they are $450 billion away from a deal. that's less than 1% of the federal spending over the next decade. in d.c. terms, 400 billion seems like a lot. that's a drop in the bucket in d.c. terms. it's amazing that small of a number killed a deal. >> if you are buying a house or a car and one person said look, i'm going at $1 billion. usu
of counsel section applies to similar actions commenced on or after the date of this legislation's enactment. why is that important? well, pause the america invents act created a new section that prevents use of evidence of an accused fringer's failure to obtain advice of counsel or his failure to wave -- waive privilege and introduce such opinion. to prove either willfulness or intent to induce infringement. this provision, however, failed to specify when the new authority would go into effect. and it makes another series of other technical clarifications to the act. in addition, we find that this bill is necessary and has made the necessary commonsense technical corrections including any substantive revision to the act. so it's my hope that the judiciary committee will continue its oversight of the act into the next congress and consider ways in which it can be further improved. i commend the chairman of the committee for his -- this bill forward and i urge my colleagues to pass this legislation and i reserve the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from michigan rese
and rejecting real action against gun violence. at a defining a historic moment for our nation demanding courageous leadership, the nra has declined to step forward as a credible and constructive partner. the proposal for more armed guards in schools may be helpful in some instances, but it falls short of the strong, serious comprehensive action needed to stop the kind of horrific tragedy that occurred last week. many police that spoke to me on that day when we take a said that the killer was so heavily armed that they doubted they could have stopped him. the american people are demanding real change. the nra proposal fails to offer any real protection from violence. members in connecticut and around the country are writing and calling me to say that the nra does not speak for them. it was a call for action. the nra has failed to answer the call. we need to do something about these guns, about the assault weapons, the kind that was used in the new town tragedy. i am very proud to join and senator feinstein oppose the bill that will help put a stop to the proliferation of the assault weap
of duty? why is it not the grounds for disciplinary action? the 1998 bombings in kenya and tanzania, the a.r.b. formed then came out with a series of recommendations. many of your recommendations today, broader ones, are very similar. those bombings in east africa were supposed to have been a never-again moment. what happened between then and now that this could possibly have happened to? >> without accepting your characterization of the problem, it is clear that under the law and in connection with the state department regulatory practice, one has to find willful misconduct or similar kinds of action in order to find a breach of duty. one of our recommendations is, there is such a large gap between willful misconduct which leads obviously to conclusions about discipline, letters of reprimand, separation, the removal of an individual temporarily from duty, that we believe that gap ought to be filled. we found perhaps close to, as we sit in the report, breach -- but there were performance inadequacies. these are the ones we believe ought to be taken up. >> how did the lessons of kenya and t
now. the president promised action. the white house announcing vice president joe biden will head an administrationwide effort to come up with legislation in the wake of the newt down massacre. what form that takes is not clear. i'm bill hemmer. welcome to "america's newsroom.". >> hi, everybody, i'm martha maccallum. the president said he would to everything in his power to bring about change after a gunman massacred 26 people including 20 young first-graders at a connecticut elementary school. we're told he will announce the effort today. it will happen a couple hours from now. bill: steve centanni from the white house. what do we expect there, steve? >> reporter: well, bill, we expect the president and vice president joe biden come into the briefing room in a couple hours and begin process gathering information from inside their administration to formulate new policy, any kind of policy. any idea that could prevent this kind of mass violence, these kind of school shootings to happen in the future. this cops as newt town, connecticut, deals with the mass shooting. the yesterday
of you who is listening or watching. without you, change would not have happened. your actions resulted in bradley being moved from quantico. make no mistake about that. with your actions, and the draconian actions he lived under for nine months came to an end. the magical watchers healed him and he was no longer required to live in the condition he was in. we all know that he cannot be here tonight. he knows tonight is happening. he wanted me to personally thank each and every one of you for taking the time to write to him. for signing petitions, for attending marches and rallies. thank you to writing to our government complaining about his conditions. thank you for donating to his legal defense. for volunteering at courage to resist and the bradley manning support network. he wanted me to thank you for carrying about him. the that so we have waged for the last two years cannot have been fought without your help. it has been a hard fight. we are at 140 exhibits. that amounts to over 20,000 pages of written attachments. i'm confident by the time this comes to a conclusion, this will be
on marshall and fdr to get this kind of action in place? >> i don't think he bluffed marshall or fdr, but, of course, he was a good politician. he was a great politician. he used to say he didn't like politics, but the approval rating of president was 65%, a number modern politicians would kill for. he was very good. the way he did it, and i'm not the first to discover it, but he had the great gift of being underestimated and how useful it was to be underestimated, and so montgomery could swan around, and churchill could bluster, and patton could be patton, and eisenhower kept it steady because he knew he was in charge. he let other people have the glory and blow off the steam, but at the end. -- but at the end of the day, he was running the show. he was marvelous at it. nothing preabs you to be president, but running the liberation of europe is not a bad preparation. [laughter] on the first night in office, he writes in the diary, "plenty of troubles and challenges ahead, but, you know, in a way, it feels like a continuation of what i did since 1941 and before." he was unphased by the jo
. john harwood has the details. what's going on? >> not a whole lot of actions going on. although there have been some developments. let me bring our viewers up to date on those. first of all, treasury secretary geithner this afternoon announced the united states would hit the statutory debt limit on monday. that's new year's eve. that's part of an effort to pressure congress to act to raise the debt limit which may or may not be direct limb reply indicated in the fiscal cliff talks but it is relevant to the larger issue of debt and deficits. the treasury can move money around in certain ways to extend the point where we actually reach a crisis for probably a couple of months. but this is an early warning sign. secondly, republicans in the house sent word to democrats in the senate, white house, it is your turn now. we acted to put off the fiscal cliff several months ago with a bill that without objection tend all of those bush tax rates into the future and would turn off the sequester by switching defense cuts over to domestic programs. democrats, of course have no intention of d
. it is not the outcome that i wanted. that was the will of the house. unless the president and congress take action, tax rates will go up on every american taxpayer and devastating defense cuts will go into effect in ten days. the house has already passed bills addressing the fiscal cliff. passed a bill and replacing the president's sequester with responsible spending cuts and did it last may. we passed a bill to stop all the tax hikes on the american people scheduled to take effect january the 1st and we did that on august 1st. and we propose plans over and over again, the democrats used to support and now they won't. i don't want taxes to go up. republicans don't want taxes to go up. we only run the house. democrats continue to run washington. what the president has proposed so far simply won't do anything to solve our spending problem. he wants more spending and more tax hikes that will hurt our economy and he simply won't deal honestly with entitlement reform and the big issues facing our country. we need significant spending cuts and real tax reform to address our long-term debt problem and pave th
,,,,,,,,,,, a class action lawsuit over unintended accel >>> toyota says it will pay more than $1 billion to settle a class action lawsuit over unintended acceleration in its vehicles. the proposed settlement would be one of the largest of its type in automotive history. if approved by a federal judge, toyota would make cash payments for vehicles devalued by multiple recalls and install special safety features on more than three million cars. >> for consumers, the two major defects in toyota vehicles are going to get fixed. the bad news is, how many more defects are there? how many more recalls are there going to be? after all, toyota, in the last three years, has recalled over 10 million vehicles. >> now, this settlement does not resolve claims by people who want money for injury or death linked to the acceleration problem. >>> well, for the cost of a postage stamp, a group of bay area women received a priceless gift. juliette goodrich explains how it all started with a discovery in a thrift store. >> these five cards must have somehow gotten mixed in >> reporter: she found five cards, but no stam

is embedded with marine sharp shooters in action. but first over a career spanning more than 60 years few have earned a more formidable reputation as an analytical thinker than harold brown who was the nation's 14th defense secretary during the carter administration. a true prodigy he earned hi doctorate in physics from columbia university when he was just 21. he started his career at livermore lab in california and eventually moving to the pentagon where he became the director of defense research and engineering then air force secretary and eventually defense secretary. his ability to handle a staggering workload are legend including read and annotating 400 page briefing books overnight. during the career brown shaped fighters like the f-15 and f-16 that remain the air force's backbone fleet today. and championed jointness among the military serv before the failed iran hostage rescue mission convinced others to follow. now 85, brown continues to serve on the defense policy board and is a trustee of the center for strategic and international studies. with joyce winds low, brown recently co-aut
by the speakers ponied, procedural excuses. they are part of excuses. they expect action. i say to the speaker, this is not a game, it is not scoring political points of putting wins on the board, there will be very serious consequences for many of families if congress fails to compromise. it is time for the speaker to return to the negotiation table ready to compromise. it is time for the house, especially house republicans to remember what is at stake. i repeat. further $50,000 program would pass overwhelmingly in the house. it is up to the speaker to let that occur. melissa: that was harry reid speaking on the floor. he was criticizing speaker boehner. we are waiting for senate authority leader mitch mcconnell to take to the podium and ressond to that. he is up at the podium. we will listen. >> here with the leaders of the democratic party, here in the senate, other than the president, these are the folks with the greatest responsibility for protecting the american people from the tax hike in america. what do they do, they stand in front of the cameras and laugh. they giggled at a bunch of

meaningful action and all but guarantee the next atrocity is only a news cycle away. the media calls semiautomatic firearms machine guns. they claim these civilian semiautomatic firearms are used by the military. they tell us that the 223 surround one of the most powerful rifle calibers when all of these claims are factly untrue. they don't know what they are talking about. worse they pert wait the dangerous notion that one more gun ban or one more law imposed on pieceful lawful people will protect us where 20,000 other laws have failed. as brave and heroic and as self-sacrificing as those teachers were in those class rooms and as prompt and professional and well-trained as those police were when they responded, they were unable, through no fault of their own, unable to stop it. as parents, we do everything we can to keep our children safe. it's now time for us to assume responsibility for our schools. the only way, the only way to stop a monster from killing our kids is to be personally involved and invested in a plan of absolute protection. the only thing that stops a bad guy with

impose on marshall and fdr to get this kind of action in place because i don't think you bluffed marshall. but, of course, he was a good politician. he was a great politician. his approval rating as president was 65%. a number that modern politicians would kill for. and he was very good, and the way he did it, hardly the first to discover that, he had a great gift of being underestimated. he knew how useful was to be underestimated. and so montgomery had swung around and churchill would bluster and general patton could be general patton. eisenhower kept his steady shield because he was the guy in charge. he let other people have the going to let other people blow off steam, but at the end of the day he was running the show. he was marvelous and. as you say, imagine the scale of what he had to deal with. of course, nothing prepares you to be president. nothing does. but the liberation of europe is not a bad preparation, and on his first night in office he writes in a diary, funny of trouble and challenges ahead, but in a way it feels like a continuation of what i've been doing since 1941,
should not have to wait and see is some sort of action so if we don't see an agreement between the two leaders in the senate, i expect a bill to go on the floor. and i've asked senator reid to do this, put a bill on the floor that makes sure that taxes on middle-class families don't go up. that unemployment insurance is still available for 2 million people, and that lays the groundwork then for additional deficit reduction and economic growth steps that we can take in the new year. >> all of this still developing. and we will have more on all of it with mark shields and david brooks later in the program. >> also ahead >> warner: also ahead, between now and then; protesting a gang rape in india; mass producing high quality education and remembering general norman schwarzkopf. but first, the other news of the day. here's kwame holman. >> holman: the u.s. economy has dodged a potentially crippling strike at ports up and down the east coast and gulf coast at least, for now. the longshoremen's union agreed today to extend its existing contract by another month. that word came after the unio

now while i believe it is absolutely the case that these actions averted a second great depression, i believe it is also true that we are now facing the consequences. and that is borrowing 31 cents of every dollar we spend. we've seen some improvement because we were borrowing as much as 40 cents of every dollar we spent. clearly that is unsustainable. it is going to require action. and i think most people who have studied this understand we have both a revenue and a spending problem. this chart i think demonstrates it quite clearly. this looks at the relationship between spending that's the red line and revenue, that's the green line, going back to 1950. so this is looking at 60 years of our spending and revenue history. you can see that we are near a 60 year high. we've come somewhat off it, we're near a 60 year low in revenue. that says to me we've got to work both sides of the equation. those who say we've got a spending problem have it half right. we also have a revenue problem and both sides have to be addressed. our gross federal debt surpassed 100% of our g.d.p. this year.

leader in gun control, called the n.r.a.'s plan a distraction that's only intended to delay action by congress. >> should we have a conversation about school security? yes. should we have a conversation about mental illness and the culture of violence? yes. but we can't ignore the common denominator in all of these deadly massacres: access, easy access to killing machines. >> reporter: the fact is, scott, that one-third of america's public schools already have armed security and it's interesting to note an armed deputy sheriff was assigned to columbine high school near denver in 1999 but failed to stop that attack that killed 13. >> pelley: chip, thank you very much. of course, the best thing is to prevent a mass shooting and the united states secret service has spent years studying assassins and school shooters in order to do just that. brian vossekuil and robert fein wrote two studies for the secret service and they told us in an interview for "60 minutes" that gunmen often leave a lot of clues about their intentions. >> strong key to prevention is to encourage those with informa
meaningful action and we should also point out, and ratings on the game title so parents have a sense of how violent and nonviolent the games have to be, but maybe you're seeing the evolution in public opinion, but kind remains to be seen. coming up, dr. sanjay gupta, he'll take a look at the mental health angle of the story. wait till your kids move back home after college. we were going through so much of the bargain detergent. and the clothes didn't look as good. but since we switched to tide we use much less. an amazing clean for all three of our full-grown dependent bundles of joy. that's my tide, what's yours? plays a key role throughout our lives. one a day men's 50+ is a complete multivitamin designed for men's health concerns as we age. it has 7 antioxidants to support cell health. one a day men's 50+. >>> the national coverage of the newtown shooting, several residents have said the shooter adam lanza had asbe berger's syndrome. sanjay gupta takes a look at the fact and the fiction behind this misunderstood condition. >> asperger's is a type of autism. doctors call autism a neurode
of the entitlements based upon ship shod, reckless deliberations, or should i say actions, are a nonstarter. there is no way, mr. speaker, that we should raise the eligibility age for medicare, that we should not think carefully about how we approach the reform of medicaid and that we don't tell the american people that social security is solvent. so i would say move quickly to pass the middle-class tax cuts that will be for all of americans, 100%, up to $250,000, and let's think about moving into 2013, how we make this economy better by looking carefully about how we reform entitlements that are not handouts but they are earned. i wanted to move to something else. offer my deepest sympathies for those who lost their lives in the oregon massacre again at the hands of a gun and a perpetrator that is now dead and to say i thank bob costa for having the courage to get on national tv and speak to those who are rabid sports fans and say it's time for some form of gun regulation. the tragedy that occurred with the nfl player and his girlfriend speaks volumes to the idea of individuals who don't n
's highest military medal for action in italy. as a member of the senate, senator inouye continued his fierce defense of his state in his partnership with alaska. my preye predecessor, ted steve, knew senator inouye as his brother. they worked together and produced much good for both our states. that will last for generations. when i was elected to this office, senator inouye was one of the first members to reach out to me to ask how he could help. the unique thing about senator inouye was always his quiet approach to all the issues. he provided me quiet advice and helped me learn how this place works. many times i'd be down here at the podium and in the well here waiting for the vote to be tallied or members to vote, and snon senator inouye was come in, stand at the edge there and look up and just say, how's it going, alaska? and we would have a brief conversation and usually his words were land incredible insight -- it may not even be relevant to the topic that we were voting on, but he'd say something to me about something he knew i was working on. and he would just share a few words. i kn
appropriate care so that someday he isn't watching with horror on the television as the tragic actions of his child unfold. we think of the story shared online of the mother in idaho terrified that her own son has the capacity to kill some day. and yet, without the ability to give him the intensive medical care, treatment and intervention she believes he needs. across this country, mental health care is a growing challenge for us, between 2009 and 2011, states cut more than $2 billion from community mental health services. two-thirds of states have significantly slashed funding in these difficult economic times leaving parents seeking help for their mentally ill children often with nowhere to turn. mr. president, we must do better for all these parents, the parents who lost their children at sandy hook elementary, the parents who lost their children who were teachers and faculty, the parents of those who are first responders and families who struggle with children with mental illnesses and mental health problems. frankly this week, i also think about parents all over our country who have lost
provide help through government and other institutions. but that is an action to ameliorate the effects of a condition, not to change the underlying condition. i believe we must do all we can to revive the marriage culture, increase family stability, and ensure that more children grow up in a two-parent household, strong families have always been the key to upward mobility and economic security. if we want to remain an aspirational society, a society where children have the opportunities and the resources to pursue their dreams and create a better life, then we must encourage young americans to embrace what ron has consistence and elizabeth sawhill have called the "success sequence." that is very simple: you complete high school, get a full-time job, get married before having kids. you follow that you are virtually guaranteed to avoid poverty. the marriage culture is fighting an uphill battle against forces threatening to overwhelm it. everyone who believes in limited government and economic freedom and the real self-worth and well-being of our children should do their part in rebuildin
's not necessarily good for people that have lost their homes, lost their businesses and without quick action from congress and robust, definitive, comprehensive support from the federal government, these individuals, these communities will not be able to recover. and i am living testimony as a senator from one of the state's hardest hit in recent memory from a natural disaster to really to be able to testify as almost an eyewitness -- as an eyewitness of what happened in the aftermath of hurricanes katrina and what is possible in this recovery for hurricane sandy. it's been over seven weeks since hurricane sandy claimed the lives of more than 130 americans, destroying -- and i want to correct the record -- 340,000 homes and 200,000 businesses. just to put that in comparison, in hurricane katrina which primarily hit south louisiana and mississippi, we lost 275,000 homes. this is 340,000 homes that have been destroyed. more than hurricanes katrina and rita. and 200,000 businesses, substantial many more businesses than hurricanes katrina and rita -rblgs where we lost about 18,000 businesses. part of
thinking that only delay meaningful action, and all but guarantee that the next atrocity is only a news cycle away. the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. you know, five years ago, after the virginia tech tragedy, when i said we should put armed security in every school, the media called me crazy. but what if, when adam lanza started shooting his way into sandy hook elementary school last friday, he had been confronted by qualified armed security? will you at least admit it's possible that 26 little kids, that 26 innocent lives might have been spared? is that so abhorrent to you that you would rather continue to risk the alternative? i call on congress today to act immediately to appropriate whatever is necessary to put armed police officers in every single school in this nation, and to do it now, to make sure that blanket of safety is in place when our children return to school in january. the nra is going to bring all of its knowledge, dedication and resources to develop a model national school shield emergency response program for every school that w
